1" sensor compacts vs micro four third

I have tried a semi-scientific comparison on my blog




Note that I am shooting both the Sony RX100 Mark II and a Panasonic GX7 with 8mm fisheye, 7-14mm wide angle, 14-42mm zoom so I have a pretty good idea

Split shots with Micro Four Thirds and rectilinear lens

13 June 2015 - 10:11 AM

Has anyone tried a split shot with the Panasonic 7-14 and wide angle port?
The dome for the fisheye is really small at 11cm and I don't like the distortion.
I tried last year with a Nikon D7100 and Tokina with the 20cm dome but had to zoom to 16mm to get rid of distortion I like the resulting shot

I am aware the image with the fisheye will be sharper but the larger port seems easier to handle for a split

Panasonic G7

Looks like a mini GH4 and has cinelike profiles plus Flickr reduction for shutter speed in movie
I believe still no Auto ISO in manual. Apparently it has the same processor of the GH4 but not same sensor.
It retails at half the GH4 price
